About Us

Will Kalif author at TelescopeNerd

Hello, My name is Will Kalif and I am the owner of this website. I created this website because I love telescopes and Astronomy. It goes all the way back to my early teen years when I got my first telescope as a present. It was a small four inch reflector. Since then I have been involved in a lot of different telescope stuff including the making of them. I have spent countless hours under then night sky just in awe of how amazing our universe is. I hope that I can be of help in your quest to learn about the wonders of the night sky.

I also write a book “See It with a Small Telescope: 101 Cosmic Wonders Including Planets, Moons, Comets, Galaxies, Nebulae, Star Clusters and More”. It is available on Amazon. If you have a small telescope or are thinking about getting one then check it out.
